RELAP5 to TRACE Conversion Plug-in

The RELAP5 to TRACE converter plug-in is a feature plug-in for SNAP that allows the semi-automatic conversion of RELAP5 models into TRACE models.  Each selected RELAP5 component is converted independently of the rest of the model, preserving component interrelations.  The conversion process results in a new TRACE model containing the converted components.

The R52TRACE Plug-in User's Manual contains instructions for using the R52TR plug-in to convert RELAP5 models into TRACE models.

An R52TRACE plug-in tutorial has also been created which steps the user through the process of converting a RELAP5 TYPPWR model to TRACE and displaying a comparison of the two models using a supplied animation mask.

Change Log

Version 3.4.6 - Released 4/24/2024:

  • The Multi Junction TRACE component converter was updated to support converting to a TRACE multi junction component as well as several single junction components.
  • The Hydro Connection Angle conversion was updated to use degrees instead of radians. This supports and update to the TRACE plugin that modified the hydro connection angle to always be in degrees.
